Every year, the seventh and eighth graders of St. Roch do a science project. This project usually takes about 3-4 months, and it is very difficult. Once the students are done, they are judged by a series of parents and supporters of the St. Roch community. It is quite the achievement when a student receives a blue ribbon, because that is very difficult to do. The top five students in each class go on to compete at Queeny Park’s Science Fair program, which is even more difficult.
